ANIMATION

The Inner Life of the Cell

In 2006, Harvard University teamed up with XVIVO to develop an animation that would take their cellular biology students on a journey through the microscopic world of a cell.

The Inner Life of the Cell follows a white blood cell’s movement along the endothelium and its response to an external stimulus — a process known as leukocyte extravasation. This widely-acclaimed piece is the first in a series of animations XVIVO has created for Harvard’s BioVisions.

The second installment, titled Powering the Cell: Mitochondria, follows the mechanism of ATP production along the inner mitochondrial membrane.

In 2013, we released The Inner Life of the Cell: Protein Packing, which illustrates the crowded molecular environment present in cells.

Narrated versions are available on the BioVisions website.

Client


Harvard University

XVIVO is top notch! I work with a lot of vendors on behalf of my clients and XVIVO exceeding my expectations every time. Not only was the work outstanding, the service was as well. Even when things got crazy, and they did several times, XVIVO delivered with a positive, can do it attitude – making my life and direct contact with the client much easier.
